Audition - "Moonlight and Magnolias"

County Players announces open auditions for the July comedy “MOONLIGHT AND MAGNOLIAS”

County Players, one of the longest running community theatre companies in the area will hold open auditions for the first show to launch our 62nd Season, our July production of the Ron Hutchinson comedy, “MOONLIGHT AND MAGNOLIAS” on Sunday & Monday, May 5 & 6 at 7:00 p.m. This production will be directed by Michael J. Frohnhoefer, who recently helmed our acclaimed production of the comedy, “Exit Laughing”.

The year is 1939 and David O. Selznick is making the mother of all movies, Gone with the Wind. The cast is in place and cameras are rolling. There’s just one problem— Selznick doesn’t have a script yet. So he locks himself, director Victor Fleming and script doctor Ben Hecht in a room with little more than peanuts, bananas, and a typewriter, and they proceed to reenact the saga of Scarlett and Rhett. Only this is Scarlett and Rhett like you’ve never seen before! This rip-roaring farce is a hilarious homage to the men behind an American movie classic.

Casting: 3 men, 1 woman: DAVID O. SELZNICK – Big time movie producer; BEN HECHT – Famous screenwriter; VICTOR FLEMING – Famous director; and MRS. POPPENGHUL – David O. Selznick’s long time dutiful assistant.

For more information including a complete list of character breakdown, please visit

Auditions will be Sunday and Monday, May 5th & 6th 7:00p.m. at the County Players Falls Theatre located at 2681 W. Main, Wappingers Falls, NY.
